1. RDG Planning& Design along with David B. Dahlquist: “High Trestle Trail Bridge” (Des Moines River, Iowa)

    "The bridge creates an unexpected experience in a landscape often overlooked by Central Iowans. The rotating steel gates can be disorienting at high speeds on a bicycle– this effect encourages cyclists to slow down, or even stop at one of several lookout points. When still on the bridge, the forced perspective contained by the linear experience, A to B, is shattered. The bridge then becomes about experiencing the expansive landscape on all sides."
